    Hey Jason,

    Best thing to do is download the development tools, compiler, etc. and then Google "python tutorials".

    You will find a TON of stuff that will walk you through the coding of simple projects, which will build up your knowledge of the language.

    If you are new to programming in general, then you may want to look at search results for "symbolic logic" or "programming logic" which will get you on your way to understanding the way you need to think when teaching a computer to do your bidding.

    HTH,

    Chris

    thanks so much Chris.

    I'm trying to dive right into python. I bought "Developing Modular Rigging Systems with Python" from 3dbuzz.com. I've started the videos but didn't get very far. So now I'm back tracking to figure what I need to know to get my Rigging System running.

    I got the development tools and I'll start doing some tutorials.

    Hey Jason,

    You're new to programming, right? Then how about this book (Amazon.com: Programming in Python 3: A Complete Introduction to the Python Language (2nd Edition) (9780321680563): Mark Summerfield: Books Your book's title tells me that the author probably assumes that his readers already know Python.

    Modular Rigging? So your goal is to learn Python to be able to script in Maya? Jumping straight into rigging probably isn't the best idea. Start with python basics as suggested above. Once you get the hang of Python concepts and language syntax you can look into how Python works with Maya.
